Portlandia Live | FNO

Posted by Mark Toler on 08/14/2019


The ZSE controllers will be controlling live from the Summer Meetup 2019 at the Shilo Inn Portland Airport! This will be the kick-off event of the entire weekend meetup and we're happy to have KPDX (along with KTTD, KHIO, and KUAO) be the featured airports! This FNO will be great for some VFR traffic into these others fields to bring some realistic traffic and great flying in the PNW.

We're happy to announce that Bill Womack of ORBX, also known for his KPDX FlightBeam Scenery, will be attending the Summer Meetup over the weekend as well. With ORBX's recent True Earth Washington release, and soon to come Oregon, we know the flying opportunities will be great with this area. So be sure to fly in and/or out for this epic event. 

Remember, the Summer Meetup 2019 is not just for our controllers but is a VATSIM wide event where many of those attending are also just pilots. If you're able to make it to Portland for the weekend be sure to register for this great meetup which will feature not only this FNO, but another Live event on Saturday the 17th.  Click below for more information!

Northwest Light-Up - LIVE

Posted by Mark Toler on 08/13/2019


This will be a Saturday live event handled during the weekend meetup hosted by ZSE for all VATSIM members, pilots and controllers alike. The meetup will be in Portland Oregon from 16-18 August, 2019.

More details are indeed to come, but the current things we will share is we will be having a rotating shift to keep key areas of the ARTCC staffed for a full 12 hours. For sure KPDX and KSEA will be staffed.   During various time blocks, we may also feature some specific airports throughout the ARTCC, especially for smaller GA VFR traffic whom we hope will enjoy the great VFR flying the Pacific Northwest has to offer in August.

For those interested in attending the meetup which will be held in Portland Oregon, please visit this link! https://zseartcc.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&p=27434

FlightSim Expo 2019

Posted by Mark Toler on 07/30/2019


Your vNWA Executives attended the FSExpo 2019 conference and had a great time and experience with all the new technologies both in hardware and software in the Flight Simming Community.  We were able to meet with and attend meetings with designers and developers in all facets of software, hardware, and sceneries as well as homebuilt cockpits.  We also were able to fly and try out new yokes and throttle systems as well as new sceneries installed for us to experience.  We also met with the VatSim team and we were the first to try out their new upgrade to the voice client  that is about to be released with voice capabilities on unicom 122.80.   

We were able to meet up with some folks to help us in the right direction to finish our upgrade back to the ".com" server that Robbie Suwary and his staff have been working so diligently on to get us back up and running with a full functioning website and new ACARS system.  Stay tuned for updates on that in the very near future.  Overall it was a great conference and chance for the current Executive Staff to all meet in person for the first time.
